South East Arts has engaged local photographers from around the region to help capture the images for the Museum of the South East (MoSE). Their images, alongside those from participating museums and our own collection, have helped to make MoSE a very impressive online resource. We hope you enjoy their work and continue to return to MoSE to see future updates and additions to the website.
